Azalea pancake

 

Azaleas are one of the most typical flowers, which signal the arrival of spring.

In the traditional Korean society, villagers enjoyed new spring eating azalea pancake or azalea rice cake.

Also, this pancake was a royal court cuisine in the Chosun Dynasty.

nonglutinous rice powder 300g

Glutinous rice powder 300g

8 azaleas

2 tablespoons grape seed oil

1/3 teaspoon salt

3

Remove the pistil and stamen from azaleas

And strain the flowers after washing them with running water.

It’s ok to use only glutinous rice power but it was too chewy for me.

So I mixed glutinous rice powder 300g and nonglutinous rice poweder 300g.

It’s done when the dough is elastic and rose well.
